After yesterday's hike over in Great Smoky Mountains National Park we were itching to get out and do some more hiking. It turned out to be a warm day and so we decided to head over to Asheville to go for a stroll. Our destination would be Rattlesnake Lodge which lies just off of the Blue Ridge Parkway near Weaverville.
Th hike to the lodge ruins was relatively easy and, after a few switchbacks in the beginning and then a relatively flat trail, we found ourselves at the ruins of the lodge.The lodge was built by Dr. P. Chase Ambler as a summer retreat for his family. The lodge burned in 1926 and what remains are mainly just old walls and piles of stone.There are the remains of the pool,
